I remember (barely) when I was little and I wanted to be a grown up. The time dragged by. But now, that I’m “older” there are days that I wish it would slow down. I can’t believe that Thanksgiving has come and gone; Hanukah and Christmas are right around the corner. But that’s nothing–when I stop and realize that tomorrow is my forty-eighth wedding anniversary–I don’t know what to think. How did that happen? The children are grown–mostly with their own children. We are both retired from our professions. How did the time pass by so quickly?
But, I tell myself, it’s a good thing. Like all marriages, we’ve had a lot of ups and downs. And like I’ve told clients in the past–relationships of any kind take a lot of work. And in this case–it has been a relationship worth working for.
